Amid the ongoing global conversation about the economy, and projections about when — and in which markets — the world might emerge from financial crisis, the collective voice of the 25-and-under age group is hard to hear.

It could have been silenced due to a sense of futility about challenging the so-called Establishment, or it might be online — constrained by such social media outlets as Facebook and Twitter.

Whatever the case, advertising and communications agency Euro RSCG Worldwide is taking measures to get the under-25s to speak up on such issues as the environment, health and education at an event called One Young World, which will be held from February 8-10 in London.

Kate Robertson, UK group chairman of Euro RSCG, and  CEO David Jones conceived the idea of holding an annual global summit for people aged 25 and younger.
